Heavy Scandinavian humor

por Taren Barreto (2021-04-07)

For the query'Scandinavian humor'Yandex, as an example, provides only 4 absolutely matching links. One too is complete nonsense, the second results in a look at Erlend Lou's literary creation, which really has quite adequate humor - Volvo Trucks, the 3rd - towards entry in LiveJournal with all the wording'heavyweight Scandinavian humor ', the fourth to some certain forum to the niche'Norman theory and Scandinavian humor ', and Some see anything about humor directly. The image is symptomatic, right?

Simply speaking, in the event the descendants with the Vikings have humor, it is extremely peculiar. Not necessarily the Russian folk "three ha-ha" but not maybe the idiotic Bin from Foggy Albion, very understandable and nearby the Russian soul.

At this time, we've got to do not forget the point that the characters will humor in'The Most Important Boss'on the suggestion and within the strict guidance in the well-known many-something-fob Lars Trier, the carrier of your proudly attached prefix'von ', which in itself is funny if have a sense of ​​some facts about the director's biography with the exceptional previous film works.

However, Trier, famous for his unbridled film innovation, having filmed films off imaginable and inconceivable genres, applying mystical legends in hospital interiors, ending with social drama against the historical past of your black backdrop, complacently and naturally transferred his efforts towards the comedy genre, as the only virgin soil, hitherto remaining unplowed. However, many viewers, exploring the "fresh" Trier, will understand that they have no feeling of humor. Or even the Dane does not have it. "And that is more likely," we say to them in consolation.

The plot is simple: the director on the certain mid-range IT company hires an unemployed actor 123 movies to effectively and convincingly portray the "most vital boss" naturally, who does not happen in nature, who is now towards the Danish kingdom to evaluate his own small business, for an average fee. Everything.

A couple of hours and forty minutes of screen time "the key boss" goes into funny troubles of any boltological nature, getting into conflicts and essentially close relations with any office employees (6 "old people" with respect for gender balance), using an ex-girlfriend, through an Icelander, with an employer ... 4x the writer himself intervenes while in the events, while using the confident voice on the creator "exposing" the comedy towards viewer, voicing and illustrating the laws of your genre's existence.

On the whole, the humor in "The Most Important Boss" needs to be WANTED to see. I wanted to, and that it was funny to me. Not everyday, she didn't tear her tummies, but you can find more than enough truly funny situations. And the general atmosphere of the first absurdity is rather successfully based on the photo, whose originality is born, apparently, to ab muscles Automavision, created by Trier, because no living and healthy operator would dare to shoot like that. Very often in the center of the frame you will find there's doorway, then a laptop monitor, then only half of the character's face, uttering remarks. Feeling that you lives a unique life, whatever the characters. And re-decorating funny.

To express that the image is minimalistic will be to say nothing! In "Boss" we view a type of hi-tech with the cinema: white smooth walls, office furniture - completely straight lines and standard colors, office equipment, judging through the disposition from the frame, playing the title role, faces and figures of characters.

It is obvious that with this ascetic plot and scenery, the audience's interest automatically shifts on the characters within the film and what it is said (to a reduced extent, what they are doing). To "keep" the eye and attention of everyone, you will need to PLAY! And are generally playing.

One cannot but praise, naturally, Jens Albinus, whose surprisingly stupid and touching face, "The key boss" owes a substantial portion of his success. The roles of losers and bungler look really good while in the performance of just such guys, causing sympathy and slight annoyance at a similar time.

A fascinating fact could be the presence within the casting of the director of the heavyweight, affectionately accepted at that time "Angels of your Universe", the Icelander Fridrik Thor Fridriksson within the role of a small business partner, and a potential buyer of this complete office, completely indefatigable and uncontrollable, damn HOT (huh) and very undiplomatic Icelandic uncle Finnur. The role is small, but very striking.

Of women, perhaps, I have to praise the "real blonde" Iben Yail, who is still remembered by me to the role with the hysterical Scandinavian girlfriend in the character John Cusack in Stephen Frears'"High Fidelity", and also a good game in "Dogme-95" No. 3 - "Mifune's Last Song" ... Excellent madama. P-ara can be where she needed to - would've settled in Hollywood with numerous royalties.

Rather than conclusions.

The film is funny and original, but is not without a large quantity of boredom. With a comedy, pure water just isn't drawn, but quite watchable, otherwise at 2 am. I would not recommend it to everyone and everyone, but fans of Trier's antics will, I do think, be satisfied. As, however, and connoisseurs of oh-oh-very subtle, barely noticeable humor. Anyone who wishes to fool around and see how cinematic geniuses practice it - you are welcome! That way.
